Abstract

Up to date, no study explores the relationship of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of long non-coding RNAs HOTAIR (lncRNAs HOTAIR) with cancer recurrence and patient survival in uterine cervical cancer for Taiwanese women. We therefore designed this study to investigate the clinical roles of lncRNAs HOTAIR SNPs in cervical cancer. One hundred and sixteen patients with cervical invasive cancer and 96 patients with preinvasive lesions as well as 318 control women were consecutively recruited. LncRNAs HOTAIR SNPs rs920778, rs12427129, rs4759314 and rs1899663 were analyzed and their genotypic frequencies were examined by real-time polymerase chain reaction. The results indicated that there were no genotypic differences between patients with cervical neoplasia and normal controls as well as among patients with invasive and invasive cancer, and normal controls. However, genotype GG in lncRNAs HOTAIR SNP rs920778 was demonstrated to be a predictor for poorer cancer recurrence probability [p=0.001, hazard ratio (HR): 7.25, 95% CI: 2.19-23.96]. Furthermore, cervical cancer patients with genotype GG in lncRNAs HOTAIR rs920778 had worse overall survival (p =0.002, HR: 7.22, 95% CI: 2.09-24.92). No significant associations exhibited between lncRNAs HOTAIR SNP rs920778 and clinicopathological parameters. In conclusion, this studied lncRNAs HOTAIR SNPs are not associated with cervical carcinongensis. However, lncRNAs HOTAIR SNP rs920778 may be regarded as an independent predictor of cancer recurrence probability and overall survival in cervical cancer patients.
